Six Afghan police found shot dead in Helmand
« on: June 13, 2013, 03:18:49 AM »
Via the BBC:

Six Afghan policemen have been found shot dead at a checkpoint in southern Helmand province, in what officials believe was an insider attack.

Provincial officials told the BBC that a policeman killed six colleagues and fled with weapons and a vehicle.

The Taliban said the policeman had been recruited by them for the attack.

While many Nato soldiers have been killed in insider attacks, analysts believe most of the casualties occur within the ranks of Afghan forces.

Earlier this week a policeman opened fire and killed seven colleagues in the Gereshk district of Helmand.

And so it continues.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
